Great Location

  • 5 of 5

First of all I have to say Bill and Robin are great, Robin answers you back by text right way with any questions or concerns you might have so that is always a major plus, the house was in a great location, so you could walk everywhere or just ride the ferry, one of the great things about the house is you have a spot in the garage because parking can be a bit of a bear with the street cleaning days so that was a major plus, now for the house the pictures on the internet do not do it justice the home was light and airy with that home away from home feel, with very comfortable beds, it also had a great kitchen to cook in. If you preferred not to cook then right out the front door not that far of a walk down the block to the ferry or downtown you could enjoy a nice meal out or have my favorites for desert the Balboa Bars or Salt Water Taffy. Thank You again Bill and Robin for having such a lovely beach home to share with everyone.

Just do it!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful property, close to the beach and the ferry to Newport. Everything is a five minute walk. The property is well maintained, clean, and quite spacious. Bill and Robin were great to deal with, easy to communicate with, quick return of security deposit. Looking forward to another stay!

Perfect House, Perfect Owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family event nearby. We came from Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Colorado. Our party included five adults and three children. The children loved sleeping in the bunk room and there was plenty of room for the adults, even when sharing a room. And having three bathrooms was a huge plus. We were very pleased with the location of the house and loved riding the ferry back and forth to Balboa Peninsula or walking to the main street for ice cream. The owners were very professional, accommodating and responsive. The house was sparkling clean and included everything we needed, from extra paper towels to K-cups. I highly recommend this rental!

First time Balboa Visitors

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful month at this rental. It was everything we hoped for. A short walk to town and the ferry. We walked around this beautiful island everyday. The house is extremely comfortable and clean and the garage space is a real plus. Bill and Robin are super nice people and wonderful to work with. When our children visited they also loved the house. We would definitely return!

Large Rental Property on Balboa Island provides a wonderful vacation

  • 4 of 5

Balboa Island is the perfect get-away for young families and mature families. We coordinated a vacation with adult children and our grandchildren and this rental property handed our group perfectly. Four bedrooms and three baths. Large livingroom and large kitchen table to accommodate our crew of 8. The property owners provided bed linen, bath towels and enough beach towles, beach chairs, beach umbrellas for one and all. There was also a boogie board availabe. Garage with a space for one car and coin operated washer and dryer. Perfect location to easily catch the ferry. The owners were wonderful to work with and made the business side of the vacation very easy. They even helped me navigate sailing lesson options for my grandkids.

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rent here every year. Bill and Robin are easy to work with and their place is very convenient and perfect if you like to spend equal time between Newport and Balboa. We have kids and there is ample room for everyone to sleep, have fun, and have meals. We have stayed on the island in many different houses. Most of them are uncomfortable and overpriced. This one is affordable and comfortable. It is easy to feel at home and enjoy being on vacation. I would recommend this house to anyone staying with their family in Balboa.
